Limited Visitor Access & Basic Services Resume at Thousand Islands National Park

Mallorytown – Starting June 1, 2020, Thousand Islands National Park will offer limited visitor access and basic services.

Visitors will be able to access the following services and facilities:

  • Most mainland day-use trails and green spaces at Mallorytown Landing, Jones Creek and Landon Bay;
  • The boat launch at Mallorytown Landing;
  • Some docks and trails at Beau Rivage, McDonald, Georgina, and Constance islands;
  • Overnight mooring at Beau Rivage, McDonald, Georgina, and Constance islands for boaters with onboard facilities; and
  • Most mooring buoys.

Until June 1, these facilities remain closed and we ask that visitors respect these closures in order to allow Parks Canada to do the necessary work to prepare for opening.

Those seeking to travel from a distance are encouraged to assess their plans as the visitor centre, all washroom and toilet facilities and overnight accommodations in the park will continue to be closed until further notice.

Visiting Thousand Islands National Park will be different than it has been in the past. Visitors are asked to plan ahead by checking the www.pc.gc.ca/ti website before they travel to find out:

  • what is open;
  • what they can expect;
  • how to prepare for their visit.

The health and safety of visitors and employees is of utmost importance to the Government of Canada. Parks Canada is following the advice of public health experts and continues to make every effort to limit the spread of COVID-19. Visitors should follow the advice of public health experts, including necessary hygiene practices and physical distancing of two metres from others.

Parks Canada is asking Canadians to be cautious and conservative in their use of these places, to observe any regional or Ontario travel restrictions and to respect any closures that are in place. Anyone participating in recreational activities should be extra cautious to avoid injury and/or getting lost to help minimize the demands placed on search and rescue teams and on the health care system.

All camping facilities remain closed until at least June 21, 2020, while Parks Canada assesses whether and how these services might resume. Group activities and public events are suspended until further notice.

Detailed information on Parks Canada places and the measures the Agency is taking to limit the spread of COVID-19 can be found on the Parks Canada website: pc.gc.ca. Please check regularly for updates.
